    Mpox is caused by an orthopoxvirus that occurs primarily in countries in West and Central Africa. In spring 2022, the disease was detected in people in Europe who had no direct connection to those areas in Africa. The disease then spread in Europe, North America and in other areas than where it originated. After a spike in the summer of 2022, the number of reported cases declined sharply in the fall of 2022.
